How to Cover Acne Makeup Tutorial

Pimples. Whiteheads. Blackheads. Zits. Blemishes. Acne. However it’s defined or labeled, we’ve all experienced the results of clogged pores. For some of us, its an occasional annoyance, and for others it’s a constant struggle. No matter how acne effects your life, when a blemish rears its irritated head, we all think “oh no, this has to go!” So, let’s talk about how to cover acne and acne scars using makeup.

You Must-Have Product to Cover Acne

If you get the occasional blemish, Zap & Hide Blemish Concealer is the product for you. One of the major indicators of a blemish is a red, irritated spot, and Zap & Hide contains beneficial botanicals and antioxidants that soothe and minimize the appearance of redness. So, when you first notice a zit, grab this full coverage concealer and pat it on the spot.

How to Cover Acne and Acne Scars Like a Pro

If acne is a daily concern or if you’re heading to a big event and (SURPRISE!) you have a stress zit, our Global Makeup Educator Shawn Towne has the solution for you.

Now, it’s time to cover your acne and acne scars!

  • Dot Disappear Full Coverage Concealer on any blemishes or scars, then blend it out in circular motions, using the Blending Brush.
  • Once you’ve applied concealer, build coverage with PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation.
    • Shawn recommends using the “press & roll” technique. This is when you fold a Flocked Sponge in half like a taco. Then, press and roll the foundation onto your skin for a more full coverage finish than you would receive using a brush.
  • Finally, set your awesome camouflage work with Hydration Spray. Now, you’re ready to start on the rest of your makeup look!

  1. Hi, I have been looking for this information for a long time!! I am a Jane iredale customer! I use amazing base powder. I have cystic acne scars & I am going thru menopause so I have been breaking out every day due to hormone’s. I would really like to buy these products & work on learning how to cover scars better. I don’t even know if I am using right colors for skin tone. Please help me!! Thank you

  2. This is amazing!! Love your tips and tricks…zits are always so hard to cover and they somehow always come out at the wrong time. This is going to be a big help for all those times you have a zit but need it soothed and covered ASAP. Great to see your products are really natural and use ingredients that are good enough to eat! Even more of an excuse to buy new, natural, non-toxic products. So many acne products are stuffed with chemicals that are bad for your skin, so it’s great to see you’re recommending products that will actually help!
